    I sent an E-mail to Retro studios(their working on Metroid 3) asking that they atleast include an option for a more classic type of control scheme. It seems to me that although Mike didn't say specifically that such a control scheme would be available he was hinting at it(I hope). Here is a copy of that correspondence.

    *Sigh

    Atleast they listened

    For some reason, when those places e-mail you back, it always seems as if they didn't really read anything that you said because there isn't MUCH as far as a reply goes to what you said. My bet is that somehow when a person e-mails them, keywords are taken from that e-mail and used in a pre-written reply because that just doesn't seem like a normal answer for an e-mail.

    .. I dont.. but I need to be able to have better turning strafing control than I believe is possible by dragging the view about with the crosshair..... Id rather have strafe and look control under my thumbs and the ability to move my crosshair about the screen at the same time.

    The peripheral have a point. because when i wrote nintendo, They sent me some unnecessary info which didnt relate to my questions or suggestions........ and I let my friend read the email. and he said the same thing. that he feel that they pick out keywords and respond on that. So most of the time, you are going to get a foney answer..........Let me tell you wat to do 5010. write that same messege again and then see if u get the same answer..... Change the title if you want. But do that and you will know whats up

    1) Metroid isn't going to be using the same type of box-strafing that Ubisoft is using.

    2) The wiimote control scheme is going to roxor.

    3) No, you don't need a different control scheme, you need to get use to the wii control scheme, as you had to get use to the new scheme with the N64, GCN.

    4) Do you have any idea how many emails these people get? You honestly expect them to put time into every reply they give? You have a lot to learn about big business.

    I am out of my element as I am not a hardcore FPS fan, but I must say the control scheme used in Call of Duty 3 has brought new enjoyment to the FPS genre in my opinion.

    I used to play PC FPS's but never could stomach playing them with the limits of classic console controllers. With my Wiimote and Nunchuck I find myslef actually enjoying FPS's on a console for the first time ever.

    Although not a hardcore FPS gamer, I would hope that several control schematics are available with the launch of Metriod Corruption.

    wow, we are one in the same. I have been a huge pc fps fan since the original Doom/Wolfenstein.

    As has my friend, who really got into red steel with me. I have always hated FPSing on a console, but I am loving it with the wii.

    metroid needs to be like a copy cat of halo : as in online play and what not. This will launch the wii into crazy killer app madness.

    Lan the wiis up and play capture the flag, metroid style sounds good to me.

    I just want online play for nintendo becuase they deserve it and they have some nice franchises that would benefit greatly from online.

    Super smash bros online, would be even better.

    Metroid 3 would be uber pwnage if they include DM, TDM, CTF, Assault and Defend, and Objectives online MP modes.

Mario Kart double dash would have been better with some online play................ But yeah man when I get my wii. I need to keep in touch with all you online lovers lol...So I could beat you'll to pieces lol.

    One of my friends did tell me that ya know................. But they need to do the online play better this time and for more games..... Thanks for the info though......... The way nintendo did the GC, it didn't look like it suppose to have online play. you know what i mean? I think that was the major issue with the GC.
